    I'm sure everybody has seen that Jimmy Kimmel bit where he bleeps out words and the viewers think the person is saying something really offensive. Dexter Manley former Washington Redskins player called Troy Aikman a "Queer" in post game analysis on a local Washington radio station. WJLA the local ABC affiliate does a story on it and bleeps out the word "Queer". When you listen to the report you think Dexter called Troy a faggot. How the hell can you bleep out the word "Queer" when there was a hit TV show on Bravo called "Queer eye for the straight guy". Are these TV stations such pussies that now the word "Queer" is so offensive that you have to bleep it out. The word faggot is offensive and I can understand why a TV station wouldn't want to repeat it. No one ever said Manley was a genius. The guy was illiterate and a drug abuser.

    While I agree with you, it's all about context in this case.

    Queer eye can be construed as queer meaning different or out of the ordinary.
    Calling someone a queer with the purpose of belittling them, not gonna fly.

    I think it's bs myself but whatever.

    YEAAAH but they were all gay men on the show. That equates to Blacks using Niggah, they are so they can say it. It's fucking stupid BUT with all the heat the gay community can bring to a station it isn't worth it to not to bleep it.

    we used to play kill the enwurd, which was probably the same, jump and beat whoever had the ball. No lie, very un-PC, I'm now ashamed.

    Holy shit I totally forgot about playing that game. Ironically when we were playing the game, nobody associated queer with being gay.

    really, he needed to "greatly apologize" for that? i'm somewhat sure aikman's prolly been called much worse on the field and his ego can survive this..

    If WTOP used the "Dump Button" this would never have become an issue. They wouldn't have even had to fire Dexter Manley. It could all have been handled off the air. Before they even got this comment Manley was saying how certain players peed in their pants afraid of Peyton Manning.

    You must have gone to school with the famous Little Johnny..." When we catch him, stick your dick in his mouth and ass."
